Friday Frills



Do not take anything as being forever
because forever is only as long as today. 

Know that the people who are richest
Are not those who have the most,
But those who need the least. 

We are at our strongest when life is at its worst,
And at our weakest when life no longer offers a challenge.

It is wiser not to expect, but to hope,
For in expecting you ask for disappointment,
Whereas in hoping you invite surprise.

Unhappiness doesn't come from not having something that you want,
But from the lack of something inside that you need.

There are things to hold on too, and things to let go,
And letting go doesn't mean you lose,
But that you acquire that which has been waiting around the corner.

Most of all,
Remember to use your dreams as a way of knowing yourself better,
And as an inspiration to reach for the stars...

Lilli said...

Hi Sam! There are 2 phrases I loved most: the fourth amd the last one. I do believe that is alway better to not expect anything from life to not get disappointed, hope and put the high effort to reach what we want is the best. And I also think our inner dreams just reveal what we are and what is our purpose in
Life, believing in them to make them true is like believing in ourselves, the only able to realize them. Goodnight dear! Xo

Isabelle Chu said...

That umbrella is crazy! And I love the last couple lines of your post - we should definitely use our dreams to know ourselves better.

Pamela RG said...

I have to admit that I had to read this several times to get the message. I agree that nothing last forever, that we must keep on going on, let go of somethings but hold to our dreams to make us stronger and to know ourselves better. Very wise reflection. Happy Friday!

Sam, your quotes always give me something to think about. "Unhappiness doesn't come from not having something that you want, But from the lack of something inside that you need."
For some reason that part really resonates with me, even if I don't entirely understand it. It just seems like something that parallels with my life right now."

And your comment on my last post made me smile from ear to ear in public and even go, "Aw!" out loud. It was the sweetest thing I have read. You are so kind and I am so glad to have met such a kind soul such as yourself.
Have a beautiful weekend, you incredible, incredible lady! <3

oh but if forever is only today, what is it about love? i would like to believe that love is something which will last for a long time, if both parts in a relationship are eager to work on it and be faith- and truthful to each other ...
